NY Adds Gender “X” Option to State ID Cards

New York residents 10 years old and up can now opt out of basic binary anatomy categories on the state’s free ID cards by selecting an “X” option instead of outmoded “male” or “female” options. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio celebrated the milestone as one of justice, saying that “in the fairest big city in America, we have a mandate to further our commitment to justice and access for all transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming New Yorkers.” The 1.25 million IDNYC holders don’t even have to stick with what they pick but can change his, her, or its gender selection at whim and for free with taxpayers footing the bill. In typical Leftist fashion, taxpayers will get stuck with the bill for liberal policy laboratory experiments.

New York City’s free identification card, marking its launch four years ago, has added a third gender for users to select.

IDNYC is available for city residents ages 10 years and up, and was designed so that populations who might not otherwise possess a valid ID can have official photo identification, such as the homeless, undocumented immigrants, the elderly, and those who have served time behind bars.

With the ID, users can get access to city buildings and services, get discounts, get a library card, and have something to show a cop if asked for identification by police. It can’t be used to buy booze, drive, or prove the right to work in the United States.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today that “in the fairest big city in America, we have a mandate to further our commitment to justice and access for all transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming New Yorkers,” so the IDNYC will reflect that.
